This idea is learnedly set fortn n a quaint little German work by Christian Wclsc, published in not, as well as in many inter The earlier scientific attempts to account for the tremendous down- I pours to which Ihc name "croud- I -st" is applied assumed that th^ v.aler was due lo rapid condensation in the vortex of a tornadc or waterspout, and hence the name ''waterspout" was formerly often applied lo a cloudburst, even when he product of- thunderstorms. Vio- ent uprushing currents of air always occur at the front of an advancing 'thunderstorm. Moisture n the air drawn inlo Ihe storm by thete currents' condenses as it rises, on account of the cooling of : the air by expansion, but the upward blast is so strong that for a time the water is prevented from falling as rain. If the rising currents are weakened at some point, a large accumulation of uater Is permitted to fall at on e time.
